Evans worked hard for her three-set victories over No. 10 seed Alexia Harmon in the quarterfinals and unseeded Alanis Hamilton in the semifinals, both of which clocked in at over two-and-a-half hours. But in the final, Evans was at her best, defeating unseeded Maddy Zampardo 6-2, 6-1.
“I was stepping in on balls, taking advantage of every opportunity I would get in a point,” said Evans, who is coached by Bear Schofield at Pass Academy in McLean. “I think we’re both bigger hitters and that’s why it was a quicker match, because we both just go for our shots.”
